We are licenced for a maximum of 80 people for your ceremony and wedding breakfast (this includes the happy couple), and then, up to an additional 50 guests for your evening celebrations.
The hire charge includes the use of our chairs, lace sashes, tables, glass wear, and fairy lights.
Our very attentive staff will be there to look after you throughout and ensure you have everything you need to make your day every bit as special as you have planned.
Here at Crook Hall and Gardens we are passionate about our Afternoon Teas and they are always popular on wedding days. Delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes are served on our beautiful vintage crockery with steaming hot pots of tea or coffee. Afternoon Teas are included as part of our package options.
We offer the choice of Afternoon Tea if you choose a bespoke wedding day, or you are more than welcome to hire your choice of licenced caterers to provide you with anything you fancy, from rustic pizza to a five course meal.
We also offer a range of delicious Canape, Buffet and Evening Food menus (see our website for further details).
Whether you choose to start your evening with a romantic first dance among the flowers and fairy lights in the gardens or head inside to get the party started, our Medieval Hall provides a unique backdrop for your evening celebrations.
Our bar will be open serving a full range of drinks from craft ales to cocktails and our staff will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Choose your band or DJ, or compile your own special playlist for our music system and create the perfect atmosphere for you and your guests.
